Ok ladies... I have always been kind of an honorary member of this board after cycling with so many of you, but Monday it almost became official! Little Evelyn almost arrived in 2011.
For those of you who haven't stalked the 2012 board here is the skinny...
I started bleeding Monday at 4 AM. Since I was able to get a strong HB on the home doppler my OB let me stay at home until the office opened. When I went in everything looked perfect on u/s and with cervical check but OB pulled out a nasty big clot. Based on that he recommended a C-section because he thinks placental abruption is threatening.
He gave me a choice in doing the C-section at my home hospital and risking having Evie sent an hour and a half to the closest hospital with a NICU since she was only 35 weeks and 4 days or leaving and going to that hospital prior to delivering and chancing the drive and/or a different opinion from the on call OB there.
Well I of course decided to risk the drive rather than be separated from her in her first days if she did need to go to NICU. By the time I arrived at the hospital (an hour and a half drive) the bleeding had stopped and all was well with the world. Based on that the OB here recommended I stay here for a week for monitoring and that we deliver early next week assuming the lungs appear to be developed from the amnio we will do. He even said its possible we can still attempt a vaginal delivery.
So I am here where hopefully things will remain quiet for the next few days or so and Baby Evelyn will be with me soon.
Oh and the upside to all this is we were FINALLY able to get 4-D pics of our previously camera shy gal Monday. Here she is.
And speaking of photos... I just LOVE all the pics of gorgeous little ones that have been flying around here the last couple of days.
Blair- the girls are just too much in their Christmas garb.
Amanda- Maribel is so stinking sweet.
Ryann- the book pic is absolutely precious. I think you have a couple of geniuses in training on your hands!
Anna- Paul really looks a lot like Daddy. I can see you in him too, but he favors his Dad. You two make one heck of an adorable little man though.
Lou- Chloe's eyes are amazing...and what a great Santa pic.
Kat- hope you are doing well mama! Since you were officially on the list on the other board we did make your announcement there too.
